About this photo

This photo was shot from the top of a multistorey car park. I watched the birds flying around and making these fantastic patterns in the sky and shot a few pictures. This is the only one that came close to representing the strange shapes the flock made. I believe these birds were starlings, which often flock like this in the autumn and winter. They gather together in huge flocks so they're less vulnerable to predators, to keep warm, and to exchange information on feeding areas, according to the RSPB.
